Abstract:
Navigation quantities were computed using dead-reckoning between GPS fixes from a Garmin GPS receiver within the nighttime Odyssey IIb Autonomous Underwater Vehicle. This data set was collected during the MUSE experiment.
Purpose: These data were collected for oceanographic research.

Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Data were sampled and stored within the AUV's internal memory. Post- mission, the AUV was retrieved and all binary data downloaded. Data were translated into ASCII format. Missions are grouped according to the day of the year. Sample configuration files can be found within the Night/bin directory. Please peruse the README.txt for more information on configuration files.
